Source: Dana White blames Tito Ortiz for Cyborg turning down fight against Rhonda Rousey

 
I guess Ortiz advice Cyborg that 135 was too much of a cut for her, and wants Rousey to come up to 145lb, her original weight class. I though the weight was a none issue anymore after Cyborg said she could make 135.....

"That was never said! Cyborg' will fight her anytime, anywhere at 145. Cris said she would kill herself trying to make 135. I won't allow it, (and) neither should the UFC or Dana. Cris wants the fight, fans want the fight, and so does the UFC. If Ronda is such a great fighter, why doesn't she fight at the weight she started at? This is no different than (Anderson) Silva cutting to 170 to fight GSP. It's not healthy, period."

It looks like that's what Dana said. I am having a SUPER hard-time with this 'unhealthy weight' thing for a women who's only 10 pounds from her goal and is carrying around too much muscle.

It's just stupid to claim it's too much weight. Anderson Silva isn't carrying around 20 pounds of extra muscle.

Wait so Dana says Tito advised her not to do it, Tito says that isnt true but then goes on to say and I quote

"Cris said she would kill herself trying to make 135. I won't allow it"

Tito has been hit in the head too many times.

Why did she state the she could make weight then? She said it would just take her longer than the few months. Said fight didn't happen because UFC wanted right away and she needed more time to make the cut. Phone Post

LOL

Tito wont agree to the fight unless Dana gives him a percentage of the PPV revenue.

I think there is a very big difference in telling someone not to fight someone and telling someone not to cut weight. I doubt cyborg is scared to fight rousey or thinks she'll lose, she just doesnt want to cut weight, ive never cut weight and i dont know much about it so i cant comment on how legitimate all this weight crap actually is, dana is just finger pointing to find blame for his own failings.

pidgey - hold on a second, is Tito Cyborg's manager now?

Yes. I think she's the first fighter he signed if I remember correctly.

the story is Tito advised her against giving in and once zuffa called her bluff she relented and said she could make 135 and willing to do so.  but now she has to sit on the sidelines until this rousy fight is over.... instead of using this year suspension to get to 135.

the ufc is not having a 145lb division nor are they having female fights outside of 135lbs so a big fail by tito.

Tito is absolutely right that it's unsafe for Cyborg to lose 10 pounds when she's such a low body fat percentage......how about dropping the muscle and fighting at a natural weight then, duh?

You know what is fucking hilarious about this? I'm watching Family Guy and they have character called Dr. Diddy on right now. They asked him 'if you get shot in a rap feud can you perform surgery on yourself'?

LMAO

Your timing is awesome, you must be psychic.

All Tito and Cyborg have to do is wait for the buyrate for Rousey's main event.

Hilarious that people are ragging on Tito, one of the biggest earners in the history of the sport.

What are you blabbering about? How is it Dana White's failing? Stupid.

"ive never cut weight and i dont know much about it so i cant comment"

Should have just let it go at that.

Really? Why would that be hilarious? What does being a good fighter have to do with being a smart, skilled manager? You've never heard Mr. Ortiz talk, I see. He's, uh...really not very bright. Not very bright at all. Being a good athlete has zero to do with being a successful manager, and it would be quite easy to give a long string of examples as proof. Missing a few links in your logic there.
